We’ve had a tropical depression roll in on the islands so there’s been a lot of rain, lightening and thunderstorms and movies watched lately. I feel like the rainy season started early here this year because we’ve had rain for months now.. but it’s still hot and muggy! I think the last two days have been the coolest for us but let’s just say I haven’t worn my beloved skinny jeans in a while. Here are some snapshots of life. In short, went to see Jenny Lewis in concert again, lots of games at home, cuddles, sleepy lunch dates, rare workouts on rare sunny days, mall/theater hangs, birthday celebrations, baking, brunches, a 24hr bug and giggles.

Weekend Getaway

This past Saturday Derek and I stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki to celebrate 7 years together (7 years of dating, not marriage). It was the first time that we’ve been away overnight, just the two of us, since Rowan was born. Rowan had her first ever sleepover with a friend so she was super excited and had a lot of fun while we were gone. D had to work on Saturday so we weren’t even gone a full 24hrs but it was still so nice to get away and relax. Here’s to staycations!

This is Rowan’s last week of summer before she’s off to school again.... boooo. Although I do like having all of those extra hours to myself in the mornings, this summer has made me realize I’d much rather have her with me all day. I can always stay up late or wake up earlier than her to get a couple of uninterrupted hours in if I need them so it’s been super productive and fun and I pretty much don’t want summer to end!
Anyway, here are some pictures from our beach day last week... it was gorgeous out and we ended up staying for almost 5 hours because we just couldn’t stand the thought of going back indoors. Nothing beats that cool ocean breeze.
